**ARC received from Edelweiss for an honest review**
The Argeneau Series was where my romance reading really began. (Lynsay Sands and Katie MacAlister were my first obsessions!) Lynsay Sands has one of the greatest explanations for vampirism (or immortals in this case) that I have ever come across and I love telling fellow romance readers about her! I got to read Dante’s and Tomasso’s books back to back and Tomasso may be my favorite of the twins.
Tomasso is held captive in a cargo hold by an evil doctor/scientist’s crazy henchmen. Little do they know that Abigail is in the back hiding from them as well after they’ve hired her best friend, Jet, on an “emergency” flight.
We go from airplane, to stranded on an island, to island villas as Abigail and Tomasso repeatedly have to rescue one another. Tomasso’s inner dialogue was so passionate about Abigail and her ability to stay calm under pressure and her ingenuity to survive. I love seeing the male character in novels become dependent not the female character and admire her for it; rather than admonish her for thinking him weak.
Abigail struggles throughout most of the book with waking up in different locations. If you don’t read the Argeneau Series that won’t make sense to you. But if you do..hooo boy you know why! ….Ok non-readers I’ll let you in on a secret. In Sands’ world, the immortals have one true life mate that they cannot control or read their mind. This makes them a perfect pair (among other things that I won’t go into detail about). One of the benefits of life mates however is shared pleasure. That’s right…they can feel one another’s pleasure. And when it gets to the breaking point? They pass out from it! Trust me this makes for some hilarious scenes. When you go to read just pay attention to blood bags….its one of the best scenes in the book.
Abigail and Tomasso also discover how similar the two of them are when it comes time for Tomasso to reveal what he truly is; immortal. Abigail’s years of studying to become a doctor lead her to figuring out, mostly, how Tomasso’s family are all immortal and all the side effects it causes. Not only are both of them strong and supportive of one another; they both realize that the other is interested in science and how things work. Once again the life mate bond is reinforced.
As usual others from the Argeneau clan enter the picture near the end of our story; including the newly life-mated Dante and Mary (also a great story!). As always Lucian and Marguerite have their appearances. And it seems the match maker Marguerite has a plan for Jet…… can’t wait to see what happens in the future!
Until next review!!! Happy Bingeing Beauties!
